Either I'm not able to follow the discussion, or you're mixing up two things 
here :-)
There are certain guidelines to follow when writing (or porting) software for 
Haiku. Those should and will be written down at some point. If Ryan steps up 
maybe a little earlier than later.
In any case, this has nothing to do with a certification program or a badge -- 
and this is the part where I see most people objected to.

Just in case I don't get it: the (Wiki) page with the guidelines would fit 
perfectly fine on (dev.)haiku-os.org, but the badge is not bound to the Haiku 
project, right?
In any case, for things like Haikuware, I would think that a negative badge for 
software that does not fit the guidelines makes much more sense (and if almost 
every piece of software gets the "I'm good"-badge as it should be, it's pretty 
much useless anyway, as you'll then don't even notice it anymore).
